Toxic Dungeness and Rock Crabs

Toxic Dungeness and Rock Crabs

California health offices have issued a warning to consumers regarding tainted Dungeness and rock crabs caught off of the California coast. According to health officials, eating them “could be deadly.” The Department of Fish and Wildlife has issued an emergency order to delay the November 15th start date of California’s commercial Dungeness crab season in an attempt to minimize risks to humans posed by these toxic crustaceans.

It is a rare win for health officials to recognize food risks before people are injured. In this case, humans should not yet have come into contact with Dungeness and Rock Crabs from the California coast. However, contaminated or unsafe foods often slip through the cracks and consumers all too often pay the price.
